that's not why mitt romney says he can create 12 million jobs over four years. he talks almost exclusively about lowering taxes to spur job growth. i have a suspicion you actually agree with him on that. >> i know you've been skeptical of that number. i think it's very achieve scrabble. as you noted with that chart that you were showing even though we have had 5 million new jobs over the last four years, do you realize we're still about 4 million jobs short of where we were in 2007. so we still have a lot of ground to be made up. in fact we should be growing the labor force and employment by about double the rate that we are. if we pick up the pace we should be at and keep that for four years i really do believe 12 million jobs is achievable. my goodness we did that in the 1980s under a republican president, ronald reagan and a democratic president bill clinton. >> and gdp was 4.8%. 4.5% in one case. 4.3%. i can find economists who will tell me we'll have that kind of growth rate. >> we should aspire to 12 million jobs. i should aspire to look like brad pitt. that won't happen

job reach across the aisle. but the fact is the only initiatives that mitt romney was able to work on in a bipartisan fashion, one, romney care. he did get that passed. two, there were budget deficits initiatives that were enacted that included nearly a billion dollars in fees. so it was bipartisan when it came to passing romney care, which he now disavows. he was bipartisan when it comes to raising fees by a billion dollars, which again, he would say he didn't do. so in terms of him being bipartisan, that didn't happen. as a matter of fact, i've heard some anecdotes that i was reminded of in the last couple of weeks. he would have a meeting with the mayors. the mayors were pretty upset that he wasn't talking to them when they were cutting local aid. he used to bring state police bodyguards into the meeting with him. he closed down an elevator that used to be public, to the legislators, the general public could get in. he closed down that elevator so only he could go up. he didn't want to get button holed by any legislators. i think if you talk to any democratic, and frankly even some

a number mitt romney should be accusatory about. barack obama has created more jobs while in office than were lost, but mitt romney points out correct lew, they are not the right quality. no, this is not morning in america. it's also not a disaster. >> ethan, jump in here. are you encouraged? >> i am. i totally agree with ali. mitt romney's been saying that we've been having x month of unemployment above 8%. he can't that anymore. on top of that, the president can say he's created over a million private sector jobs, so he has some new powerful rhetorical arrows that are in his quiver. >> when i saw this today, i thought this fits perfectly into this narrative of a country that's divided because it's a little bit good news. not a lot, and it leaves everybody with room to argue. >> symbolically, it was a victory for the white house to get that unemployment rate under 8% along with just about everybody else. i predicted that would be the key to obama winning re-election, but objectively, if you look at the numbers, there are some real problems with the number of people who have dropped

virginia. >> reporter: the jobs report took away one of governor romney's signature stump speech about how long the unemployment rate has been above eight percent. >> the reason its come down this year is because more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> tom: today's report actually showed people returned to the labor force in september. it's the first time since last october the unemployment rate fell while more people entered in the workforce. >> but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy and score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> tom: only one more monthly job report remains before election day. and with such high stakes, former general electric c.e.o. jack welch stirred up controversy with this comment on twitter, accusing president obama's re-election campaign of essentially manipulating the report. - quote - unbelievable jobs numbers...these chicago guys will do anything..-end quote. the bureau of labor statistics is where the data comes from each month. it is a non-parti

gets the jobs report, the president gets a political boost and mitt romney loses two of his favorite talking points. >> now and then you are going to say something that does not come out right. >> and to all of those hidden video donors, i would like to welcome you to the mitt romney flip flop support group. we have meetings every tuesday. ♪ >> jennifer: william edwards demming, he is a 20th century management guru he coined the phrase in god we trust, all others bring data. it has since been the guiding principal of countless ceos from general election to google. well the republicans may need a knew principal. remember these numbers? 42 million versus 24 million. those numbers are from a bloomberg study showing over the last 50 years, democrats created nearly twice as many jobs as republicans did. that is significant data. those are some cold hard facts. well today, that data got stronger. the unemployment rate dropped to 7.8%, which is the lowest since the president first took office. sure, i know. we need to do better, but the data is the data. progress is being made. the presid

labor measures employment, number one. and b, maybe mitt romney should be replacing president obama if he's not doing a good job. but to say there is corruption of somebody cooking these books, why do you do this? for a government in trust of private institutions, that's not a good thing to say. there are so many ceos that talk nonsense, what do you gain from this, jack? >> ali, i love you. i'm not talking nonsense, okay? >> i love you more, jack. >> wait a minute, wait a minute. i told you that these numbers are implausible. we don't have a 5% gdp growth in this quarter. we don't have it, ali. we revised the second quarter down. i'm involved in 14 businesses. i've been looking at them over the last week. the third quarter is not strong, it's not strong, for restaurants -- >> let me ask you this, jack. i agree with you. this is a lousy economy. 1.3% gdp growth is lousy, and yet on wednesday night, mitt romney said again -- and by the way, barack obama backs up his claim that either one of them will create 12 million jobs in four years. that is 3 million jobs a year or 250,000 jobs a
